Following two years of investigation and reflection explorers Alex Head and Sonja Horning produced this collaborative radio-essay, aired once again on London-based progressive radio platform NTS Live.
Investigating enclosure, hoaxes and the IMF through two Eastern European wastelands
Alex Head and Sonja Hornung spent some time dallying around two urban wastelands: an island in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and a space neighbouring a textiles factory in Bucharest, Romania. In this show, we investigate processes of enclosure - of turning urban land, women's labour and the body into machines of profit. As the work twists and turns each aspect of the hoax reveals that such machines invariably crash and burn.
